    I always thought Gaki meant Ghost/Kid/Twit/Idiot/Dunderhead

    High Five dude... no wait! Don't!

    On a serious note, I agree. Recently I have been watching the DP series so as to be caught up with the current season. I also wanted to witness first hand these pearlshipping hints, as I am a Pokeshipper and Pearlshipping is the newest big ash ship. Frankly, I've only seen one scene that might be a sign of deeper caring. Everything else seems very friendly. High fives? I do that all the time. Using Dawn's catchphrase? Does that mean I love Bandit Kieth? No. People are so desperate nowadays to find signs its silly. That's why I just go with, "Pokeshipping is the only shipping that ever had any concrete signs of being true and it has endured years apon years. Shut up."

    So, the Reader's Digest version is... I agree with you 100%. In America.

    Does that mean you DON'T love Bandit Keith?! *GASP*
    But you shouldn't go saying that Pokeshipping is the best, right in the middle of a refereeing. Might ignite some flames.

    I think that the main reason that people begin to use flimsy evidence is because they think that a ship is cute or amusing or etc. Over time they reinforce to themselves that their ship is superior to others, because of that seed. Since they think it's better than other ships, they rationalize that it's not only better, but the others are inferior. Then they start claiming evidence, which they may or may not understand the flimsiness of, in order to put the lesser ships in their place.
    That makes sense, right?

    Anyways, I'm glad this finally came from a source of undeniable credibility!

    EDIT: I never actually found Pokeshipping especially cute (to be honest, I think that AdvancedShipping is cuter), nor do I think that Rocketshipping is very cute, I support them because they seem to have the strongest and most legitimate case (But we all must remember that in Pokemon, there are no truly real ships) and always have.

    If you'd been around back in the day, there was almost literally a civil war amongst PokeShippers, to cast out and separate ourselves from the Gaki's who gave us such a bad name. Many shippers made their names simply on making that distinction, and impressing on people that they should judge a ship by its evidence, and not by the lowest common denominators amongst its fans.

    Just saying that's my chosen ship and stating the facts, that that is what I do. I have no intention of starting a fight.

    Wow, so I did remember that right...partially. The "Gakishippers". They were so annoying. >< The main Gakishippers I remember, though, are those that ran that Ash and Misty Love (AAML) site. They were some of the worst.

    That aside, I do agree for the most part. Some situations that people use as hints, even for Pokeshipping, seems a bit out there or over analyzed.

    This is AWESOME! I hate Gaki shippers. My otp I find has the most gaki shippers that say things like "they high five so much meaning they have a deep friendship, Ash NEVER high fived anyone else on the show before". I say "high fives are nothing, he has high fived many others". I think there are more gakishippers now though. Some didn't bother watching the older eps. Just as some gakishippers don't watch the new eps, because they'r favourite character isn't there. I hate people like that who never give the show one chance because it's "Lame". Meanwhile they haven't seen one ep of it and didn't bother giving it a try!
